Most capital cities offer good shopping and Auckland is no exception, but having a little insider knowledge never goes astray. I’ve spent many a day wandering the streets of Auckland and here I’ve come up with the best places to go to find that bargain or something unique. There are a great range of hotels in Auckland offering quality Auckland CBD accommodation to lay your shopping weary body after a hard day’s shopping.
Most of the designer shops are located in the Newmarket area where you’ll find internationally acclaimed local designers such as Karen Walker who features in the wardrobe of almost every female Hollywood star you can think of. Along with kiwi designers you’ll find all the international labels as well. Newmarket has the highest concentration of shoe shops in New Zealand with 24 of them crammed into the area. In between the chic boutiques and designer stores are a plethora of trendy cafes and upmarket restaurants and bars, so you’ll have no trouble recharging your batteries between bouts of shopping.
